In the documents obtained by People, the rapper, whose real name is Josh Stone, has claimed that his song You Need I Got It, which was dropped in 2017, was infringed upon by the Thank U Next singer.

Stone claims that Brown lifted key elements of his song for Grande's 2019 hit "7 Rings" which included the repetitive lyric: "I Want It, I Got It". In fact, the report states that every single one of the 39 respective notes of "7 Rings' is identical with the 39 notes of You Need I Got It from a metrical placement perspective. You Want It, I Got It".

The song has been nominated for two Grammy Awards, including record of the year. The attorney alleges that two experts have been approached to analyze the chorus of each song and found a substantial similarity in their rhythm and notes.

Stone wants profits from "7 Rings" and a judge's order prohibiting "7 Rings" from seeing the light of day. Grande has yet to make a statement regarding the lawsuit.

Representatives for Grande, who is nominated for five Grammys at the awards show on January 26, including two for 7 Rings, did not immediately respond to a request by Reuters for comment.

The suit has named the Universal Music Corp. along with Ariana and several other defendants.

The copyright in music has become one of the leading suits in the industry since 2015 since the verdict for "Blurred Lines" came out.

However, according to a source close to Ariana, "7 Rings" also has the same hook as "The Sound of Music" so Stone's claims are ridiculous, however, it appears Stone is referring to a different part of the song.
